The Persistence of Scent and Memory

a poetic moment, a poem i wrote some time ago (for you, about you, about us) #becausereasons #muse #love #lovers #missingyoumissingme #visualpoetry #poetry #poetsofinstagram #writing #spiritwolf

your scent was always my greatest weakness
i wanted to wear your love like a natural fragrance
i remember that time after that weekend
the traces of you in the bed
held me back from washing the sheets
for weeks
every time i climbed inside
you again
inhaled your lingering essence

waking in the morning to you
us entwined there together
in that state between a dream
and a memory
